ALBERTA IS COLD
A Pendleton man writing of the Al
berta oountry to the East Oregoniau,
"You will note by the address that
we have quit the Alberta country.
That place Is very much over rated
and ia nothing like what it is repre
sented by some of the suckers who
went there. 1 think Irom what 1 have
seen and from the information 1
(rained that the place is too cold and
the seasons too uncertain. "The
oountry has been partly , settled by
farmers thres times during the past .'(U
years, but they did no good and hid
to quit. It is a cattle country and
nothins moie. Sheep do no good, i
fact, vou cannot see a snoop in bun
draiia of miles.
"Last' winter it Kot down to 52 be'
low zero and stockmen had to feed for
eight mouths. Whilst we were there
tliuv cot some rain, the first for 10
months, and the cold was Intense,
"I notice in! Calgary most of the
bouses have storm doors and windows
and I suesa a storm cellar about the
"There . is not much of the country
being farmed, and people who have
lived 30 year in the country never
tried to do any farming for the lea
son that the seasons art'jtoojunceitain
"The C. P. K. and other laud com
paqies say Lthat settlements will alter
weather conditions. remaps tney
will, but they have not done so dur

take chances, and land is dearer than

are a coratainty. It ranges all the way
from 18 to &S5 per aore, and that
from six to 10 miles from the rail
road. I don't know how niuoh they
sell at'thatprloe.but that is what they
ank. "The talk about cheap laud is
all rot : there is none to be gotten and
all the land Is rough and new. The
brush i has to be out, burned and the
breal so broken up. The plowing
costs S3. 50 per aore, besides the cost
of cutting and burnlug the Brush,
and then there is fencing and a huu

"The water proposition is very un
certain, borne get wells where others
have cone 150 feet and have not round

of the Minnesota and uaKota people,
but Oregon ians had better stop at

made '.to produce something is very
limited, and the crop conditions very
"The irrigation project is a fraud.
Thev are tiviug to soli people land,
and ( the ditch is not dug within rive
miles of it. There are not nearly
enough ditches even if they did all
thoy lsay they are going to, and in
many instances farmers have to dig
ditches for more than a mile and a
halt to get the water onto their land.
The land is all out up with gulches
and draws which, of oourse, cannot be
graded, which will necessitate a lot of
laterals and box Humes to got the
water on to all parts of the lands, and
theie will be a lot of waste land. The
roads and ditches aie all taken out
of tha farmers' land, the company
giving nothing. The piioe for the

.More;Sprjlng Done in Wnnlilnglon
A. F. Or o well, Spokane county fruit
inspector, reports that much more
spraying has been done by orchardists
in this couu y than ever bofoiu. Some
have already tiuisfaed the tecond spray
ing for the first brood of codling
moth. The codling molh is slower in
maturing on account of the cold and
rainy weather this spring. It is now
time for the orcbardist to band their
trees. This should be completed by
July 1. About 40 per cent of the
fruit can be saved from the moths by
banding. As to the crop prospects,
Mr. Crow ell says he liuds that the
sweet cherries will l e very light, while
there will be a fair crop of tour cher
ries. There Is eve'iy indication of a
medium crop of apples and a fair crap
of pears. The cold and rainy weather
has injured the strawberry crop, which
will be much lightel than usual.
Oregon's Forest Fire Losses.

Asked regarding the fruit crop this
year, Mr. Kolloy Bald :
"We will have a good crop of every
thing except poaches and apricots.
We have only a fair crop of those, but
our crop in other fruits is linn. We
will have an abundance of grapes.
"It will be ouly a very short time
now," continued Mr. Kelloy, "until

fruit packing season will bo early this
